An Encino gas station remarkably sold two winning lottery tickets on the same night, with the lucky tickets worth a total jackpot of almost $400 million.
Mega Millions said in a press release that winning two tickets sold at a Chevron gas station matched its numbers in Friday night’s drawing. The lucky retailer is located at 18081 Ventura Blvd.
The jackpot from Friday’s drawing is worth about $395 million. It is unclear if both tickets were purchased by different parties or the same player.
Owners of the winning ticket have the option of receiving a lump sum cash payment of about $ 94.3 million or $197.5 million in 30 graduated annual installments. Those figures are estimated before federal taxes.
It is unclear how much the Chevron gas station will earn for selling the tickets.
